Latin.png Latin text

Quem terra, pontus, aethera
colunt, adorant, praedicant,
trinam regentem machinam
claustrum Mariae baiulat.

Cui luna, sol, et omnia
deserviunt per tempora,
perfusa caeli gratia,
gestant Puellae viscera.

Beata mater, munere,
cuius supernus artifex,
mundum pugillo continens,
ventris sub arca clausus est.

Beata caeli nuntio,
fecunda Sancto Spiritu,
desideratus gentibus,
cuius per alvum fusus est.

Gloria tibi Domine
qui natus es de virgine
cum Patre et sancto spiritu
in sempiterna saecula.
Amen.
